According to Kettering police, they were dispatched to the 2200 block at approximately 12:50 a.m. on a domestic incident.

Once responding officers were on scene, the male suspect involved reportedly brandished a knife and put it to his throat as officers called for him to exit the house.

Police say they issued the “Signal 99,” due to the close distance of the officers to the suspect and the weapon.

However, the suspect eventually complied with officer’s orders and came out of the house, which led them to quickly cancel the officer-assistance call.

The suspect, whose name was not released, is currently in Kettering Jail on a temporary protection order violation and will likely face other charges, according to police.

No injuries were reported in the incident.
